Every once in a while I write about the importance of learning from your losses. No one has learned more than Joe Ostaszewski.
Ostaszewski—former defensive lineman for Florida State University and the NFL’s Miami Dolphins—was recently a finalist and season favorite on the hit-show the Biggest Loser. Ostaszewski fully committed himself to changing his life and went from 364 lbs to 217—a loss of a staggering 147 pounds! Following the show, he has made a personal mission not to only live a healthier life, but also to help youth and their families make healthy decisions.
